Ethiopian Airlines has announced that it is adding flights between Addis Ababa and current serving Chinese cities, as well as plans to add direct flights to Tokyo.

The airline said it will increase its weekly flights between the Ethiopian capital and Chinese cities to 50, up from 35.

The airline also plans to beef up its Japan services by connecting Tokyo with Addis Ababa seven times a week by 2021. It currently offers the service five times a week, with a transfer in Seoul.

The new service will be direct and use Tokyo’s Haneda Airport rather than the current Narita Airport, in Chiba Prefecture.

Ethiopian Airlines flies to 60 cities in more than 40 countries and uses Addis Ababa Bole International Airport as its hub.
